Former cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin, who has been invited by the Telangana Congress to contest the 2019 elections from the state, has said he would move ahead vis-a-vis his role in the party in consultation with the high command.
The 54-year-old former Team India captain said he felt happy and honoured with the invitation extended to him by Telangana Congress president N Uttam Kumar Reddy.
“If we work together again, our Congress government will come in Telangana,” Azharuddin said at a public event here yesterday.
While speaking at an event here last week, Reddy invited Azharuddin to contest elections from the state, either for the post of MP or MLA, when the former cricketer expressed his readiness to work for the party in Telangana.
Azharuddin, a former Congress MP from Moradabad in Uttar Pradesh, said he already campaigns for the party at different places in the country. In 2014 Lok Sabha election, he contested election from Rajasthan.
